WARPAINT #4 Preview
Selene’s battle against misogyny comes to an explosive end in WARPAINT #4
UK indie musician Kev Sherry (Attic Lights – Island Universal Records/Elefant Records) and Italian comic artist Katia Vecchio (Wild Strawberries at The World’s End) bring you the final chapter of WARPAINT – a feminist tale of memory, regret, friendship, and betrayal. In Warpaint, Scottish schoolgirls Sophie, Michelle, and Selene fight against the misogyny of their upbringing and the indifference of the adult world.
In this final installment, Selene puts tremendous pressure on Sophie and Michelle to take part in her ‘Warpaint’ protest while her personal life collapses around her. In modern-day Paris, older Sophie must make a choice about how she wants to live her life. The final issue in the mini-series is available now on comiXology.

“Warpaint gives a loud, brash, and honest voice to the kids we used to be… so good I audibly gasped.” – The Valkyries
“Comparable with 1980s coming of age films Stand By Me and Goonies, but told from a feminist perspective.” – The Herald (UK)
